International Women's Day

Celebrating International Women’s Day – 9th March

Women are the fabric that holds families and communities together. Globally women weave and mend the social, economic, cultural and political fabric through their contributions and achievements. This year’s theme was #EachforEqual which means, collectively, each of us can bring change by creating a gender-equal world.

As ABC Bank, we continue to strive to be #EachforEqual. On Monday, 9th March, our branch staff marked International Women’s Day by celebrating our lady customers, who have made our ABC Bank family thrive through their business support. The ladies were pleasantly surprised and were thankful for the recognition and appreciation.

Celebrating loved ones ❤❤ – 14th February

It’s said that love makes the world go round. Well, it might be true as we helped spread the love from our diaspora customers and cross oceans and continents to their loved ones back home. On 14th February, Valentines day, we showed our diaspora customers how special they are to us by delivering surprise Valentine gifts to their loved ones on their behalf.

“Hallo, valentine hamper delivered nicely and in surprise, Thank you, my team. You are the best bank; it’s nice working with you. Good day and happy valentines to all of you back at home again. The recipient was very happy. I am a happy client,” said one of the customers.

It was a love-filled day and the bank staff were glad to bring smiles to people’s faces and remind them that they are always in their loved ones’ hearts.

Inua Biashara Inaugural Launch – 6th November

On 6th November, the Kenya banking sector, under the umbrella body of the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA), unveiled a credit platform for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) called Stawi. Stawi was unveiled at the sector’s inaugural Inua Biashara Day by His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta.

ABC Bank participated in the inaugural Inua Biashara Day that was held at Safari Park Hotel themed “Promoting innovative finance for MSMEs”. We displayed some of the products of the SME customers we have been supporting to grow their business in different industries.

“Today, our efforts have borne fruit and I am confident we are going to restart this powerful engine of our economy. I take this opportunity to thank and also welcome our development partners to join us in finding solutions to grow our MSMEs,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said while launching the product.

The platform, christened Stawi, is an unsecured digital credit scheme which is meant to improve access to credit for MSMEs, through offering unsecured loans from between KSh30,000 to KSh250,000 with repayment periods of 1 month to 12 months, at an interest rate of nine percent per year.

Speaking during the launch, the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) chairman Joshua Oigara said that Inua Biashara Day is a continuation of a concerted effort by the banking industry to provide solutions that support the growth and development of MSMEs with the view to ensure that Kenya’s home-grown companies remain strong and thriving entities. It is for this reason that our theme this year is “promoting innovative finance for MSMEs.

The loans are designed to accommodate MSMEs, which have for a long time been unable to access affordable credit because of their high risk nature due to lack of collateral or business plans needed to convince lenders of their creditworthiness.
